Casey Kotchman is a steal for Adam LaRoche. What are the Braves thinking? … Why didn’t the Rangers, Angels, Rays do something? … Nice deal for the Tigers on Washburn. … Wow, the Red Sox stole Victor Martinez. … The Peavy trade makes the Blue Jays look smart for not dealing Roy Halladay. … Reds gave up a lot to acquire Rolen and his huge salary. … Jake Peavy was the last player on my mind when I woke up this morning. Good for the White Sox. As a Dodger fan, I am glad he is out of the NL West. … Nick Johnson is a solid addition to any team. Thank god he is not a Giant. … Joe Beimel is a nice little pick up for the Rockies.
